The 2007 Talbot has a pleasant, classic nose of singed leather and game, a little muffled compared to its peers. But there is a sense of charm that I like, and it speaks of its appellation origin. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth texture. It lacks depth and grip but is nicely balanced with a cedar-tinged finish.
There's blueberry jam and violet on the nose in this medium-bodied red, with slightly chewy tannins, a fresh herb undertone and a medium finish.
